Research interests lie in the evolutionary ecology of parasitism and disease, invasion ecology, and predator-prey interactions.
The influence of trematode parasitism and fish predation on the behavior and morphology of gastropod mollusks
The evolution of a clonal invasive gastropod mollusk
The evolution of drug resistance in malarial parasites
The effect of herbivory on the mating success of mountain laurel
